You might also want to see where Ford landed on the recent JDP Initial Quality ratings for 2018 before you start yapping about price. You get what you pay for. Besides, if 300,000 people can afford one, is it really overpriced? Additionally, foreign manufacturers have taken advantage of stupid US politicians and globalist for too long. If anything, we should match tariff for tariff. Germany and Japan are some of the biggest protectionist. Why aren't you jabbering about the tariffs they place on US cars?

Hey clueless --- take a short night course in Economics and/or read Mark's stuff and maybe the clue bird will do a VFR landing near you......................

Maybe you should take an Economics for Idiots class. Anyone with a junior high education knows the first law of economics. Look it up. Fact is, Ford could charge $10,000 more and people would still buy them. But hey, it's much easier for you to get your info from CNN. I get it.

Ford makes obscene margins on its F-Series and it's largely due to the 25% import tax -- consumers are getting shafted compliments of the Fraud, Waste and Abuse coming out of the US Government.

It's time for the Fraud, Waste and Abuse Federal Government to drop the 25% import tax (on the books for decades) and allow foreign manufacturers to compete fairly in the US' truck market.

Watch as prices start to fall on the F-Series BIG TIME once this happens.
The only thing I have to say about this is that there`s not a single person on this planet who`s forced to buy any F series truck regardless of the trim level or price.
